Chocolate Cake from Yellow Cake Mix Substitute


  • 250g (2 cups) sifted (enriched) flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 3g (1 tsp) salt
  • 250g (1-1/2 cups) sugar
  • 1 Tbsp double acting baking powder
  • 20g (1 Tbsp) soy oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a large bowl, sift the flour, cornflour salt, sugar and baking powder and mix well to blend
  2. Place oil and vanilla in food processor bowl along with 1/2 cups of the flour mixture. Cover and process until mixture is very fine. Make sure that the oil is completely evenly distributed in the flour mixture. If it isn't, your cakes will have uneven texture and each will turn out differently.
  3. Return to bowl with remaining flour mixture and mix well using a wire whisk.
  4. Makes 4 cups (equivalent of 1lb (500g) yellow cake mix package )
  5. Store in quart glass jar or heavy duty zip lock plastic bags.
  6. Cover tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to a month, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  7. Each portion of cake mix will make two 8" cakes or one 13x9" cake.

{C}Make sure that you follow the directions for using the mix, including beating times, to the letter. The gluten in the flour has to develop a bit to form the cake's structure. If you use margerine, it needs to be dissolved into the batter for the best texture.
